Okay, I'll ensure that hint != 0

I'll look at adding an upper limit to __irq_alloc_descs(). If that won't
work, then I'll add an explicit test after allocation to make sure it is not
over the limit.

Good catch.

No, I've not fixed that.

It builds and runs fine without the CONFIG_OF wrappers, but I can trim stuff

Haha, good point. I'll fix that.

I think it makes the code a lot easier to read, and it makes it a lot
easier for a user to know what they are supposed to do I think. The
build size change wasn't significant either way (but I've lost those
numbers, I'll need to recalculate them again to give specifics)..

Thanks for the review.
